J COULD bear Cory Parne* breathing hard while we listened fco Uncle Jake and Archie Trask discuss the process o< stealing the Dark Angel's high-grade ore, which they were being paid to mine lor Cory. I hoped the Par- neU temper was under control. "1 think 111 go back with Johnny wfaen he brings the next load,' Uncle Jake went on. "1 don't like to stay away too k»g. There's • couple of fellows—" H happened without warning, was leaning over the parapet the shed on which we lay listening when a rotten board suddenly gave under my weight. 1 grabbed tor the edge as I (ell but missed and landed square on my back 10 feet below. It knocked ev»ry last bit of ai: out of my lungs. 1 was conscious but that was about all you couk say [or me I remember hearing Uncle Jake yeJI to Archie. "Get up there and ee it there's anyone else," and hen 1 heard him say in his usual mild tones- "It's no use making rouble. Mr. McTaig, because I've ;ot a gun." He sounded almost apologetic about the whole thing. It took me a full two minutes before I slopped choking and wheeling Trask was scrounging around on the root, lighting matches and swearing steadily, and it sounded as ff Cory hart had time to beat it into the bush up he hill Trask came down and glared at me. "Anybody with youV "Sure," 1 said, "d'you think I'd ! fool enough to tackle four crowd single-handed? I've gol men posted at the fake entrance lo the cross-cut and a blockade down the road to take care of those trucks." JJNCLE JAKE still had his gun centered on me bul it wavered a bit when he heard that. And then, like a tool, I embroidered my story. "Pretty slick, that Argus Mines business, but it gave the show away. We spotted your trucks last night and followed them over to-— " "Dear me," broke in Uncle Jake, and his gun slopped wavering, "that's very interesting. Last nighl one tnick was driven to—ah—a place where it could be repaired, and the other one wasn't used. We stock-piled our—ah—loads." I tried to blufl it out. "I mean the night before ..." but it didn't go over. Trask said, "He's alone, Jake. I know this kind of guy—too cocky to let other people in on his plans/ "The point is," Uncle Jake saic thoughtfully, "what are we going to do with this snoop artist?" "There's only one thing to do," Arrhie said quietly. "You're right." Uncle Jake said HAVE we EARNED OUR T I MoueiTABLY/ vou KAVB? _jl AM SflARES Of STOCK IK THE / ALL LABORED VOU ASSOCIATED WITH IN THE CRUMPET "Mind if she h«n£« around? She'» my sitter!

We could put him n one of the old drills and cavt n part of Ihe tunnel on him Bui we'd have to tie him and if some- jody found him before we were ready, it might be unhandy." There was a pause as Uncle Jake studied my case. It gave me an extraordinarily unpleasant feeling to hear the old 'cllow talk like that. It was as If some venerable old parson whom you had known all your life suddenly tet loose a blasphemous oath. I hoped Cory was goo fthj long- distance running and ifundered what help she would get. If 1 could stall long enough I didn't lave anything to worry about— :hat is, not much. There had to b< some honest men in the townsit*. • • • "•| THINK the best plan," Uncle Jake went on absently, "would \x V»have Turner's crew find him tomorrow morning in an ore chute. We could dump about 10 tons on top and arrange him so he'd be'busted up enough to hide any buliet holes." He said it so casually I shivered. 1 decided I'd belter slart a delaying action pronto. "I've got to bond K to you fellows," I said, "the way you tooled me. But there's one thing 1 still don't get On Wednesday, Jake, I saw plenty of high grade In the cars nnd in the mill bunker. What 1 want to know is why it didn't show up in Thursday's car of concentrates?" Uncle Jake looked at Trask who nodded. "Tell Ihe guy—it doesn't matter. He won't be telling anybody anything." "It was quite simple." Uncle Jake said. "We knew you'd be nosing around. We kept a layer of high-grade on top, just to make it look nice."
